The NASCAR Sprint Cup series will have a new rules package in place prior to the July 11 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. NASCAR confirmed the changes Tuesday. Among them will new aero rules that give less downforce to the cars.
“We care committed to putting on the best racing on the track,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief operation officer told reporters in a conference call. “The work won’t stop with this announcement.”
The package is considered exclusive to Kentucky Speedway’s race. O’Donnell said it’s possible NASCAR could implement it at other tracks later, including the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup playoffs.
“We’re constantly working on all areas of competition,” O’Donnell said, “and we’ll never consider the racing package final.” MORE>>>
